We’re a finalist in the Golf Environmental Awards. Here’s a word from Club Captain Steve to explain:
The Annual General Meeting of the Craignure Golf Club
will take place at:
(note change of venue)
on Thursday 16th January 2020 at 7:00pm.
CGC AGM AGENDA 16.1.20
Due to essential maintenance work on both the bridge and the car park the course and clubhouse will be closed from Monday 19th August to Wednesday 21st August.
During those times there will be no access to the car park as it is anticipated there will be construction equipment and surfacing and bridge strengthening material taking up most of the area.
We hope to reopen on Thursday 22nd and apologise for any inconvenience it causes.
On Sunday 21st July at 1pm Craignure Golf club is hosting the MBS Garmony open. This year the event is kindly sponsored by Mull Building Supplies and the format is stroke play with full handicap with one overall winner.
First prize is £100 with second and third prizes of £60 and £40 along with golfing related prizes and a nearest the pin competition.
It’s open to all with a recognised handicap and the entry fee is just £10.
Please get in touch if you need any more information.
It is with much sadness that we must report the death of our chairman, the Rev Johnny Paton. Johnny had been at the “helm” and kept us on an even keel (he loved a good analogy!) for more than 4 years. He always had a clear vision for the club – he was instrumental in navigating us through the recent clubhouse refurbishment, and in plotting our route to a brighter future.
Johnny loved his golf, playing off a very respectable 14 handicap, and he could often be seen on the course competing in club events – so long as they didn’t interfere with his Sunday “day job”. He was justifiably proud of becoming club champion last September.
Johnny will be a huge loss to the golf club, and indeed across the whole island community. Our thoughts are with his wife Cathy and the rest of the family.
The rules of golf changed on January 1st this year. The R&A have put together a short video explaining 20 of the most important changes:
You can download a summary of these 20 “must know” changes, or members can pick up a new rules booklet from the clubhouse. Alternatively refer to the R&A website for more detailed information. You can even download the R&A Rules of Golf App onto your phone, so you have a copy of the rules with you at all times!
The draw for the 100 Club was made at the AGM last week, and the winners this year are as follows:
First prize (£300): John & Morven Archbold
Runner up (£100): Steve Wilson
Runner up (£100): Kate Wilson
Our Wednesday evening 9-hole stableford competitions are open to everyone. Join us at 6:45pm for a 7:00pm tee-off every Wednesday during June and July.
Visitors are welcome to take part upon payment of standard green fee for the day. Any members can join in: male/female/junior.
There are no prizes to be won – just the pleasure of taking part, and the glory of maybe beating the locals!
We are running a series of 9-hole medal competitions on a Wednesday evening. These will be open to all members, and will start this Wednesday – 18th April. If you submit a card, this can be used towards gaining/maintaining your handicap.
Be there for 6pm. (this could well start a bit later as the summer nights lengthen)
We understand that some members struggle to compete in our Monthly Medal competitions because Saturday is typically “changeover day”. So this year we have rescheduled the monthly medals to alternate between Saturday and Sunday. April’s Medal, the opening round of the Club Championship, will take place this Saturday (14th) – but the May, July and September Medals will take place on a Sunday.
